Disgraced Jamie Carragher has just been dropped from tonight’s Monday Night Football after spitting in the face of a 14-year-old girl. The £1million-a-year Sky Sports pundit is due to speak to the media at 2pm over his controversial actions.
Gary Neville is set to feature on the show alongside special guest and Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers. They will analyse the Premier League clash between Stoke and Manchester City at the bet365 Stadium. Carragher, 40, has already been axed from his role on Danish telly covering tomorrow’s Champions League clash between Manchester United and Sevilla.
The ex-England defender is thought to earn more than £1million a year working at Sky Sports in the job he landed after retiring from football in 2013. Footage emerged yesterday of Carragher spitting at a 14-year-old girl through the window of his Range Rover after being teased by her United-fan dad following their 2-1 win over Liverpool. Police can bring assault charges over spitting – or prosecute as a public order offence.
